    I've suddenly got a "premium member" banner thing on my details, but I'm not a premium member as far as I know (whatever that is).

    I don't think so, I think it's just a mistake with the new software.

    I've split this into it's own thread so we can look into it properly.

    If you won or were gifted or were a GFM prior to the conversion, it transferred over into a Premium Feather membership.

    For some reason, I am thinking someone gifted you if memory serves.

    Thanks, but wouldn't I know about it? I never had anything like that before the software update, and I've never won anything, I've never paid for a membership upgrade and nobody has told me about any gift. Maybe it was applied to the wrong account?

    You wouldn't necessarily know. Most gifts are requested anonymous. :)
